We visited this place on a wet and cold Easter weekend. This was the first visit for me, but not the first for my family. You pay to park in the car park, but can get this refunded at the entrance to the attraction.
This places entry fee is acceptable for what is there and we had an enjoyable few hours doing everything.
There is lots to do and see in the park. The areas are divided into different zones, which you work through, all catering for small to young children.
We did most things apart from the outside play area due to the weather. We went up the towers, which is very high and level with the tops of the trees, this is an excellent vantage point. We did most activities, including the wet zone, which was great and allows you to experiment with dams and small boats, as well as other experiences. The building zone was good with large scale Lego style foam building bricks, as well as other play construction materials around a soft play house, today it was very busy.
The lighting zone was great fun. Also the activities area was brilliant, with lots of things to do. We really liked the paper helecopters, because you can make and fly them yourself, unfortunately most of the felt tipped pens didn't work, which was disappointing, but all the actual materials required were available.
We bought hot drinks, which was a bit confusing as signage says you can't take drinks from the cafe, however everyone seemed to be taking drinks (with lids on top, which were provided) into the park. I even asked the person on the till if this was ok and was told it was. This was ultimately ok and the drinks were fine, with loads of lids etc available.
The cafe experience was a bit disappointing, the girl who served us the drinks was a bit matter of fact with her attitude and did not deliver the best customer experience, however the lad working with her was very good.
The toilets were clean and tidy, but very small, meaning you may have to juggle to get in and out if there are other people there.
All in all this was a great visit and we had a really good time. I would certainly recommend this place if your in the area.
